00:04:39 >> IN THE LAST MONTH, YOU HAVE BEEN BLAMING THE POLICE
00:04:46 DEPARTMENT. YOU THEN DECIDED TO REPEAT THE RUMOR THAT
00:04:52 THE F O P IS TO IGNORE THE CRIME. THAT'S SOMETHING
00:04:56 THAT'S NOT RIGHT TO UTTER TO THE CITY. THE F O P IS NOT
00:05:01 TO DO OR DO ANYTHING. THEY SEE THE WRITING ON THE WALL.
00:05:05 SPEAKING OF CRIMINALS, STOP BLAMING THE POLICE, EVERY
00:05:10 SINGLE MORNING. START BLAMING THE CRIMINALS, THAT ARE
00:05:14 DOING THE WRONG. THE JUDGES THAT REFUSE TO HOLD THE
00:05:24 REPEAT OFFENDERS IN JAIL. IF YOU'RE GOING TO LOOK TOE
00:05:47 PLACE TO BLAME START LOOKING AT THE BEGINNING. THEY
00:05:51 CONSTANTLY LOOK THE OTHER WAY WHILE BAD BEHAVIOR SNOW
00:05:55 BALLS INTO BAD BEHAVIOR. A SCHOOL SYSTEM WITH SOCIAL
00:06:00 JUSTICE AND VICTIM HOOD. THE SAME COMMUNITY OF CERTAIN
00:06:05 VOICES, IMAGINE HOW MUCH WORSE THE POLICE WILL DO IF
00:06:09 THEY DO LESS. I ASSURE YOU THAT THERE'S SEVERAL POLICE
00:06:13 DEPARTMENTS THAT WILL LOVE THE MAN POWER, BECAUSE THEY
00:06:17 HAPPEN TO HAVE LOWER CALLS FOR SERVICE. I DON'T KNOW --
00:06:24 WHY DOES ALL OF THIS MATTER? REAL SIMPLY, I'LL CUT TO
00:06:29 THE CHASE, BECAUSE, MEN AND WOMEN LIKE OFFICER BRIAN, S
00:06:34 T R O U.S. E. HE GAVE HIS LAST BREATH FROM THIS VERY
00:06:41 CITY, DEFENDING IT FROM THESE CRIMINALS --
00:07:19 >> HEY, CUT IT ACCIDENT I NEED SOMETHING TO SAY, I
00:07:24 NEED TO TELL YOU THIS FROM EXPERIENCE. WE TOOK A
00:07:28 BUILDING OFF DEMO LIST. ARE ARE
00:09:59 >> LET US GET A WAIVER SO TO GET SOME MONEY, SO WE CAN
00:10:04 PAY INTO THE UNION.
00:10:21 >> MY NAME IS, PATRICK. I'M HERE TO TALK ABOUT YOUR
00:10:25 BETTER TOGETHER TRANSITION TEAM THAT YOU PUT TOGETHER ON
00:10:29 APRIL 9TH AND SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS AND CITY EXPERTS
00:10:34 RESIDENTS. YOU WENT AROUND TO PUT TOGETHER CHICAGO A
00:10:39 BETTER PLACE TO LIVE. YOUR MODELLING ADMINISTRATION IS
00:10:43 BASED ON TRANSPARENCY. YOUR VALUES WERE EQUITY AND
00:10:50 TRANSPARENCY, AND ACCOUNTABILITY AND INCLUSION. WHAT
00:10:54 YOU FAILED TO DO IS YOU FAILED TO TAKE AND ASK THE F O P
00:11:00 FOR OUR INPUT. THAT'S WHAT YOU FAILED TO DO. YOU ARE
00:11:04 LOOKING AT THE OBJECTIONS FOR THE ACCOUNTABLE TO REDUCE
00:11:10 GUNS AND PRIORITY AND REFORM THE C P D. MAYOR, I WORKED
00:11:16 THIS JOB FOR 30 YEARS, I KNOW WHAT'S WRONG AND THE
00:11:21 REFORM THAT NEEDS TO BE MADE BY THIS DEPARTMENT. TO
00:11:24 MAKE THIS DEPARTMENT MUCH MUCH BETTER, AND ONE THING TO
00:11:27 DO IS MORAL, THAT'S ONE THING THAT IT WILL DO. IN 1985
00:11:34 I TOOK THE TEST TO BECOME A CHICAGO POLICE OFFICER,
00:11:40 THERE WERE 40 THOUSAND PEOPLE TO TAKE THE EXAMINATION.
00:11:44 THE REASON WHY WE CAN'T GET THEM TO TAKE THE TEST IS
00:11:48 THAT THIS JOB IS BECOMING MORE DIFFICULT. POLICE
00:11:52 OFFICERS ARE GETTING MURDERED ON A DAILY BASES. MAYOR,
00:11:56 IF YOU'RE SERIOUS ABOUT MOVING CHICAGO FORWARD, YOU MUST
00:12:02 GET INPUT FROM EVERYONE, THAT INCLUDES F O P. YOU WILL
00:12:06 HAVE DIFFICULTY ACHIEVING YOUR GOAL IF YOU DO NOT
00:12:11 INCLUDE US IN THE MEMBER SUPPORT. FALSE RUMORS ARE
00:12:16 SPREAD. THE GENERALLY ELECTION COMMUNICATION CAN BE ON
00:12:21 BOTH SIDES, BUT YOU MUST BE ABLE TO RESPECT EACH OTHER.
00:12:25 I WILL TELL YOU RIGHT NOW. WE WILL BE WILLING TO MEET
00:12:28 WITH YOU AND ANY OTHER ALDERMAN AT ANY TIME.
00:12:34 >> MR. MURRAY, ANY TIME THAT THE F O P WANTS TO DO
00:12:39 ANYTHING OTHER THAN OBSTRUCT AND OBJECT AND REFORM, I'VE
00:12:43 BEEN MORE THAN WILLING TO OBJECT WITH YOU.
00:12:46 >> APPLAUSE.
00:12:48 >> MAYOR, I'M NOT GOING TO SIT HERE AND ARGUE WITH
00:12:52 YOU. I WORKED IN INGLEWOOD, AND I WORKED 8 YEARS FOR
00:12:58 THE CITY COUNSEL. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT I'M AN HONEST
00:13:03 GUY, I'LL SIT DOWN AND TALK TO YOU. IF YOU WANT TO SIT
00:13:06 THERE AND TALK TO US, I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM.
00:13:09 >> ANY TIME YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD IN REFORM, AND NOT
00:13:15 BLOCK EVERY SINGLE ISSUE, AND CRITICIZE AND SAID NO. MY
00:13:21 DOOR IS OPEN, I SAID THAT TO YOUR PRESIDENT, AND NOBODY
00:13:25 HAS TAKEN ME UP ON THAT.
00:13:29 >> THE NEXT SPEAKER IS MR. GEORGE BLAKEMORE.
00:13:33 >> GOOD MORNING MR. BLAKEMORE.
00:13:36 >> GOOD MORNING TO YOU.
00:13:40 >> I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THE [INAUDIBLE] ESPECIALLY

00:18:19 >> IT'S MS. ISRAEL. NEXT SPEAKER IS MR. BISHOP GREG G
00:18:30 R E E R.
00:18:31 >> BISHOP GREG. G R E E R. TODAY I'M ASKING FOR THE
00:18:51 RESIGNATION OF ALLEGED E D B E R G: THE QUESTION IS,
00:18:58 DID, ALDERMAN GO AGAINST HIS POSITION BY BUYING STUFF
00:19:08 USING CITY FUNDS, WAS THAT A FRONT HIS PERSONAL AGENDA
00:19:12 TO COLLECT GUNS? DID ALDERMAN ED *BERG ABUSE HIS CITY'S
00:19:24 OFFICE BY HOLDING GUNS IN HERE? . HOW MANY BUY BACK
00:19:32 GUNS WERE TRANSFERRED TO ALDERMAN'S COLLECTION, WITHOUT
00:19:37 GOING THROUGH THE BACKTRACK N C S PROCESS? WE'RE SAYING
00:19:41 TODAY THAT WE WOULD ASK THE ALLEGEDER MAN DIRECTLY FOR
00:19:46 HIS RESIGNATION. ONCE THAT IS DONE THEN CHICAGO CAN
00:19:52 CLOSE HIS DARK CHAPTER IN ITS HISTORY THAT IS OFTEN
00:19:59 SEPARATE. AND I HAVE TO REMIND THE ALDERMAN ALLEGED THE
00:20:08 HELL THAT YOU GAVE WASHINGTON. WE'RE ASKING FOR THE
00:20:13 RESIGNATION FOR THE GOOD OF THE PUBLIC, IT IS TIME FOR A
00:20:17 CHANGE IN THE 14TH DISTRICT, PLEASE DO THE COMMUNITY THE
00:20:21 RIGHT THING AND REDESIGN.
00:20:22 >> THANK YOU.
00:20:24 >> THANK YOU, SIR.
00:20:25 >> THANK YOU, BISHOP GREEN.
00:20:30 >> *K A L E I A JOHNSON.
00:20:34 >> GOOD MORNING.
00:20:35 >> THANK YOU. DURING THE TALK WITH THE PRESS, OF THE
00:20:40 TWO TRILLION DOLLAR -- RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION THAT READ,
00:20:46 35 MILLION DOLLAR SPENT, 675 DAYS, 5 HUNDRED PLUS
00:20:53 WITNESSES, AND 18 ANGRY DEMOCRATS, NO, CONCLUSION OR NO
00:21:06 RESTORATION, AND NO ACCUSATIONS OR, IMPEACHMENTS. WHILE
00:21:17 TAGGING HIS CREDIBILITY OF KNOWN CREDIBILITY EVIDENCE.
00:21:22 WHICH HURTS IN THE EYES OF THE PUBLIC. OUR SYSTEM SAYS
00:21:25 THAT YOU'RE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, NOT THE OTHER
00:21:30 WAY AROUND. THE PRESIDENT CLEARLY DID NOT COMMIT A
00:21:33 CRIME, WE WOULD HAVE SAID SO, WE DID NOT HAVE
00:21:38 DETERMINATION. HOWEVER THE SPECIAL COUNSEL SAID THAT
00:21:42 THE EVIDENCE WAS QUOTE ON QUOTE INSUFFICIENT THAT POINTS
00:21:46 TO A NON GUILTY VERDICT. IF YOU THOUGHT THAT DONALD
00:21:52 TRUMP WAS INNOCENT THEY WOULD HAVE SAID SO, ALTHOUGH,
00:21:55 THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO CHARGE HIM. HOW CAN
00:21:58 YOU MOVE ON TO, IMPEACHMENT WITHOUT EVIDENCE. ARTICLE
00:22:10 TWO, SAYS CRIMES OF ROBBERY ACCIDENT OR HIGH CRIMES OF
00:22:15 MISDEMEANORS, IT ALL HAPPENS WITH THE WHY HOUSE -- WITH
00:22:20 THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND TRIED IN THE SENATE,
00:22:23 ANY OFFICIAL CONVICTED BY THE SENATE IS IMMEDIATELY
00:22:28 REMOVED BY THE OFFICE. AND IMPEACHMENT HAS TO PASS FROM
00:22:32 BOTH THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE. BECAUSE HE HAVEN'T BEEN
00:22:36 PROVEN IN ANY WRONG DOING NOT IN OFFICE, NOT BEFORE.
00:22:40 AND IN OUR COURT SYSTEM, IF THE JUDGE DETERMINES THAT
00:22:44 THE ACCUSED IS WEAK, HE CAN THROW THE CASE OUT AND DROP
00:22:48 THE CHARGES, THE BURDEN OF PROOF LIES WHERE THEY CAN SIT
00:22:53 BACK AND WATCH THE CASE. HE HAS GIVEN HOPE IN AMERICA.
00:23:12 YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO TAKE THAT HOPE AND DREAM AWAY FROM
00:23:16 -- THE PRESIDENT WILL NOT BE IMPEACHED. AND HE WILL
00:23:20 FINISH HIS TIME IN OFFICE AND HE WILL FINISH STRONG AND
00:23:25 BE REELECTED.
00:23:26 >> THANK YOU, MS. JOHNSON.

00:24:53 A MONEY, AND THE BLACK COMMUNITY IS SUFFERING FROM LACK
00:24:57 OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING. PLEASE, MAYOR, AND I WISH NOBODY

00:25:09 CASE, FOR NEEDING BLACK PEOPLE ON THE WEST AND THE SOUTH
00:25:13 SIDE OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO, MAYOR, THIS IS URGENT.

00:26:45 A N.
00:26:46 >> GOOD MORNING, MAYOR LIGHTFOOT. FIRST I WANT TO
00:26:55 ADDRESS CITY COUNSEL MY FATHER PASSED AWAY IN SAINT
00:27:02 PATRICK'S DAY, HE WAS THE CHIEF IN 2008. AND ALLEGED HE
00:27:11 DO *BERG, TOOK A QUIET TIME, AND I WANT TO SAY THANK
00:27:15 YOU, FOR YOUR FAMILY. SECOND WHAT I WANT TO SAY IS, I
00:27:18 WAS TAUGHT TO LOOK OUT FOR MY NEIGHBORS TO LOOK OUT FOR
00:27:23 PEOPLE, AND BE THERE WHEN THEY NEED YOU. I WAS IN ED
00:27:38 BURKE'S PRESENCE. AND I WAS WORKING AT, M A K O R M I K
00:27:47 PLACE. I TOLD HIM, I WAS NOT GOING TO DO IT. THE GUY
00:27:52 ATTACKED ME, I HAD TO TAKE HIM OUT. HELPED HIM GET ON
00:27:59 THE HOSPITAL. HE TESTIFIED TO THE POLICE THAT HE HIT ME
00:28:05 FIRST, AND IT TURNS OUT THAT IT WAS, A RELATIVE FROM MR.
00:28:11 ROBERT [INAUDIBLE] WHEN THEY CAME BUSTING DOWN OUR DOOR,
00:28:18 AND THEY SAID, WE HAVE TO CHARGE YOU WITH SOMETHING, TWO
00:28:29 ASSAULTS WHERE I HAVE TO PAY, 5 HUNDRED DOLLARS TO PAY
00:28:35 MY BAIL. TWO CHICAGO POLICE OFFICERS TESTIFIED. HE
00:28:39 TOLD ME HE HAD ANAL ENTERCATION WITH DAN H U L L.A. H A
00:28:46 N. HE TURNED AROUND, AND WE SUBDUED HIM DURING THE
00:28:54 STRUGGLE, I WAS CONVICTED AND SENTENCED, AFTER, 6
00:28:59 MONTHS, I WAS ATTACKED. THEY TRIED TO KILL ME, I SPENT
00:29:05 6 MONTHS IN CLINIC. ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS THAT THEY
00:29:17 HAVE TO PROVE THAT THESE CONVICTIONS WERE LIED. THEY
00:29:21 STOLE MY INHERITANCE THAT MY FATHER LEFT TO ME, AND I
00:29:27 WENT TO ED *BERGS FOR HELP, I ALSO GAVE HIM ALL OF THE
00:29:35 INFORMATION ABOUT THE WRONGFUL CONVICTION, MR. ED *BERG,
00:29:41 WAS INTERESTED TO PUT A LETTER TO CARRY MY NAME BUT NOT
00:29:53 TO STRAIGHTEN OUT HIS POLICE WARD.
00:29:59 >> GOOD MORNING, SIR.
00:30:04 >> GOOD MORNING, I SEE YOU UP THERE, IT'S LIKE A
00:30:08 REMOVAL OF A BLACK CLOUD. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE
00:30:11 BEFORE YOU GOT HERE, I WATCHED YOU STANDING IN THE RAIN,
00:30:17 THANK YOU AGAIN, AND WE LOOK FORWARD. WE HAVE TO LOOK
00:30:24 AT THE P L.A.'S, IF WE TALK ABOUT THE REFORM, WHERE'S
00:30:28 THE BENEFIT COMMITTEE AGREEMENTS? WE HAVE THE NEW
00:30:32 CONTRACTORS OUT, OUTSIDE OF C H A, WE DON'T HAVE A PLACE
00:30:36 AS CONTRACTORS AND DEVELOPERS IN OUR OWN NEIGHBORS, WE
00:30:42 HAVE TO LOOK AT THE WAY THAT THEY LOOK BUSINESS, DON'T
00:30:45 NO ONE THAT THIS CHAMBER WANTS TO DO IS TOUCH ANYTHING
00:30:51 FROM THE UNION. WE HOPE THAT YOU'RE COURSE AGE US AND
00:30:54 THAT YOU WILL HELP FACILITATE AND HOW THEY DO BUSINESS.
00:31:00 THE C H H PROGRAM OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS, THEY
00:31:03 DEVELOPED TWO HUNDRED CONTRACTORS, YOU DON'T SEE THAT
00:31:07 ANYWHERE. WE HAVE TO PROMOTE THAT, WE HAVEN'T HAD ANY
00:31:10 SUPPORT FROM ALDERMAN. THE UNIONS TRIED TO UNDER MINE
00:31:16 IT. I HAVE BEEN UNDER MINED AND KICKED OUT OF PROJECTS
00:31:20 ACCIDENT I CANNOT GO OUTSIDE OF THE PROBLEM. I HAVE
00:31:23 TRAINED AND DEVELOPED OVER ONE HUNDRED MEN AFTER, 15
00:31:28 MONTHS, WE'RE NON UNION SHARP, WHERE THE NON UNION HAVE
00:31:36 THE RIGHT TO WORK. JANICE VERSUS, A L D E R M A N.
00:31:45 GIVE US THE RIGHT TO WORK WITHOUT UNION IF WE CHOOSE TO.
00:31:49 WE'RE NOT ANTI UNION, BUT WE'RE NOT UNION BECAUSE OF THE
00:31:54 WAY THAT THEY ARE DOING THE BUSINESS OVER THE YEARS,
00:31:57 WHERE'S THE BUSINESS WHEN IT COMES TO VIOLENCE, THEY
00:32:01 EXAMINE TORT AND TAKE OUR MONEY, THEY ARE BREAKING OUR
00:32:05 STATE. WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THE F O P WHY IS IT THAT A
00:32:11 POLICE OFFICER CAN SHOOT A POLICE OFFICER DOWN AND GET
00:32:14 AWAY WITH IT. NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE TOUGH, BUT IT'S HOW
00:32:21 POWERFUL F O T IS. THEY CONTROL OUR BUDGET, THEY
00:32:25 CONTROL OUR CITY, WE HAVE TO LOOK AT THE WAY THAT THEY
00:32:29 DO BUSINESS, OR THE CITY WILL CONTINUE TO CRUMBLE
00:32:32 ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO OUR NEIGHBORHOODS. THEY
00:32:37 CANNOT CONTINUE TO DIG TAIT WHERE THE DOLLARS GO. WE
00:32:41 HAVE TO HAVE A REAL CONVERSATION AND WE CANNOT GIVE INTO
00:32:44 ANYTHING THAT THEY PUT ON THE TABLE. WE CANNOT DO THAT.
00:32:48 WE'RE NOT GOING TO SURVIVE. WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE A JOB
00:32:52 AS MEN AND WOMEN IN OUR COMMUNITY. BUT IT TAKES MORE
00:32:56 THAN US, OUR LEADERSHIP, WHERE'S OUR LEADERSHIP WHEN IT
00:33:00 COMES TO THE REAL ECONOMICS, HOW DO WE HELP OUR CITY? I
00:33:05 HAVE BEEN LOCKED OUT OF MY WARD. (SPEAKING AWAY FROM
00:33:11 MIC).
00:33:12 >> THE NEXT SPEAKER IS MR. L.A. M O N T. BURNETT.
00:33:21 >> I LIVE IN UPTOWN FOR 13 YEARS AND CHICAGO FOR MY
00:33:46 WHOLE TIME. I WENT TO THE HOTEL BECAUSE IT WAS
00:33:51 AFFORDABLE FOR ME. I WAS PAYING, 344 DOLLARS FOR AN S R
00:33:57 O AND A SHARED BATHROOM FOR 75 MEN. THAT WAS LESS THAN
00:34:02 25 PERCENT MEDIAN INCOME OR A M I. AND A DEVELOPER WHO
00:34:10 BOUGHT MY BUILDING WANTED TO PUSH US OUT. WHEN I
00:34:16 LOOKED, THERE WERE NO APARTMENTS, IT WAS ONLY AFTER A
00:34:19 YEAR FIGHTING THAT WE WON A SETTLEMENT THAT PARTIALLY
00:34:26 SUBSIDIZED MY RENT. AND AN ADDITIONAL 120 DOLLARS PER
00:34:32 MONTH. THE DEVELOPMENT WOULD CREATE AN ORDINANCE
00:34:37 AFFORDABLE TO ME, AND 25 PERCENT OF THE A M I. UP TO 60
00:34:47 PERCENT. THAT IS MORE THAN ALL OF MY CURRENT INCOME,
00:34:52 I'M NOT ALONE ON THIS. ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN
00:34:55 COMMUNITY SURVEY IN 2016, 60 THOUSAND HOUSEHOLD ON THE
00:35:04 NORTH SIDE, AND ALL OF THE RENTERS IN COOK COUNTY, MADE,
00:35:09 LESS THAN 30 THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR, I HAD TO LIVE
00:35:12 SOMEWHERE, RIGHT NOW FINDING AN APARTMENT, IS LIKE
00:35:19 LOOKING FOR A NEEDLE IN THE HAY STACK. THANK YOU FOR
00:35:22 OUR HOME IN CHICAGO.
00:35:26 >> THANK YOU MR. BURNETT FOR YOUR COMMENTS.
